LONG HAUL TRUCKER COMETH!!

(click to enlarge)
This bad ass black beauty is a SURLY -LONG HAUL TRUCKER! This bike was purchased at the Studio by John. The Studio is HUGE fans of Surly and what they bring to the market with their "Swiss Army Knife" versatility and great value! John is 72 years young and rides his bike everyday! He came into the Studio and asked about a bike he could ride more comfortably and rip through the maze of bike paths here in the Civano neighborhood. We came to the conclusion that the Surly would be the choice for John. Well...I am happy to report that John has not looked back and is really enjoying his SURLY!!! WOOT! The plush steel frame and bomb-proof components will keep John riding in style for years, One thing is for sure that if I am lucky enough to live 72 years, I too hope I can still rip around on a bike! John, you rock and enjoy!

HAMPTON'S INN...er...IN with this sweet Single Speed!

This fine, young, man is Hampton. Hampton picked up this beautiful Salsa El Mariachi Single Speed from the Studio not too long ago and it turned out great. If this bike looks familiar, your right! It is very similar to my bike I posted about awhile back. The biggest difference is Hampton's bike is a 20" and mine is an 18". Anyway, Hampton has been enjoying the life of a Singlespeeder and the bike itself. The bike was built with a modest mix of parts from Truvativ cranks, bars, and stem, Easton EA70 XC wheels, Niner rigid carbon fork, Avid BB7 brakes, etc. I am proud of this one particularly because Hampton came in with a budget and we met it with still a cool/quality build! Lastly, this bike has been killin' here at the Studio and right now is UNO Bicycle Studio's top selling Mountain Bike! Yes, it is a 29er! Please do come in and check out a SALSA today!

LIFE. Damn...it can get a bit busy!

IT HAS BEEN WAY TOO LONG SINCE I LAST WROTE!!! Between, a move into a new home, busy with work and being sick...I HAVE SLACKED getting anything written in my little, tiny corner of the World known as DOS WHEELS. I will try harder to keep this going more regularly. Next post on the way! NAMASTE.
